Forever Home is a touching and well-crafted short film that tells a powerful story about the struggle for stability and belonging. The film deals with themes of poverty and global warming. Through its authentic and nuanced portrayal of the protagonists’ experiences, the story sheds light on the struggles of people who would otherwise never have the chance to share their narratives, giving voice to the voiceless. Forever Home is a testament to the fact that even in a country rich with resources, being from Africa can mean not being able to benefit from the land’s abundance. With stunning cinematography and a touching score, this story is sure to resonate with audiences around the world.
